Product Description

A beautiful strand of powder glass African beads, made by the people of Krobo Mountain in Ghana, West Africa. Many designs of Krobo beads are patterned to resemble old Venetian FANCY trade beads. Made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then poured into molds in order to create these cylinder shaped beads. Decorations on the beads are made with a paste made of colored glass powder and water which is applied by hand using a thin wooden stalk. The beads are cooked a second time to fix the decor. Each bead is unique and will measure approximately 8-9 x 8mm. Strand may vary slightly from picture.

African tribal krobo beads

Beautiful beads - really different and unusual. Easy to work with from a jewellery making perspective and they certainly add the wow factor. Good service from the Bead Chest, my order arrived within a few days. Would definitely recommend and use again.
